Pokémon GO Fire and Ice Event Announced

The Pokémon GO Fire and Ice event, also known as Solstice event, takes place from June 13 to June 20 and features increased spawn rates of ICE and FIRE Pokémon, more XP for throws and discounted Lucky Eggs.

Below is a list of some of the Pokémon you can expect to see a lot more of;

Increased FIRE spawns:

Charmander, Charmeleon, Charizard
Vulpix, Ninetales
Growlithe, Arcanine
Ponyta, Rapidash
Cyndaquil, Quilava, Typhlosion
Eevee, Flareon
Slugma, Magcargo

Increased ICE spawns:

Seel, Dewgong
Shellder, Cloyster
Swinub, Piloswine

Following this, a big game update will add “collaborative group gameplay features that will get you playing in fun new ways”. Developer Niantic has yet to say what exactly this means, but we may well hear more at E3 next week.

PVP play has been rumoured to be coming to the game, along with – finally – the appearance of Legendary Pokémon. But there’s no more news on that today.

Finally – and perhaps more of interest to those outside the UK – are a number of real-life events to bring Pokémon Go players together. There’s one in Grant Park in Chicago on 22nd July, and events across Europe through the summer at Unibail-Rodamco shopping centres. Japan will get another event to be held in Yokohama, named “Pikachu Outbreak” – though we’ve yet to hear what exactly this will entail.
